Parks and Recreation Master Plan
Planning for the Future of Boerne Parks
The City of Boerne has developed a Parks and Recreation Master Plan to guide the future of our beloved parks and open space. The Master Plan, was adopted on March 8, 2022, and provides guidance for parks, recreation, and open space development in Boerne over the next decade.
Identifying Community Values
Development of the Parks Master Plan was done by working with the community to identify our shared values. These values provide a basis for the assessment and recommendations for future parks and recreation planning. The identified values are listed below.
Ensuring physical accessibility of parks and recreation facilities by all Boerne residents. This includes accessibility by multiple forms of transportation including walking, bicycling and accessibility by different ages and abilities.
Assuring the protection of natural resources such as natural waterways and habitat. Additionally, preservation of characteristic Hill Country views were of importance to residents.
Everything that we need for our survival and wellbeing depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. To pursue sustainability is to create and maintain the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony to support present and future generations.
Providing physical connections between parks, neighborhoods, and economic centers ensures the parks system efficiently supports activities of residents.
Coordination among community partners is critical for ensuring community resources are optimally utilized.
